  Phony Benoni: Coming in to this 6th round game, neither player had yet won in the tournament. However, their fates had been somewhat different: Reti had five losses, Teichmann five draws. Still, I can imagine Reti thinking, "I do have White. Maybe I can draw this one."

The game goes carefully, with Reti simplifying from here to eternity. But then comes 24...Ba2 and Reti starts thinking, "Oh, no, not again!'

But Reti quickly gets the knights off; maybe he can draw the opposite-colored bishops endgame, even a pawn down. Then comes 33...Kc3. "Oh, no, not again!"

Yep. Again. And Reti is apparently too disgusted to even try 35.Bb2+.

Nov-20-12  Eric Farley: Teichmann was probably the best connoisseur of the 4Kts' game. 24 games ( +7 -1 = 16).
Nov-20-12  Eric Farley: And the statistics above refer to Teichmann as black. As white it is virtually the same: +5 -1 = 10.
